  • Think creatively, do research, and develop tools and innovative tactics to improve efficiencies or advance the practice. Present practical ideas for future marketing expansion or optimization.

  • Build, or assist in crafting, POVs, standard methodologies, and key process documentation

  • Campaign Strategy definition and implementation, working closely with other internal departments to develop fully integrated search campaigns

  • Stay current on industry trends, focusing on how changes can help improve offerings to accounts and enhance our overall practice.

  • You'll have gained essential experience in Analytical Tools (Google Analytics, Web trends, Omniture), Search Engine Desktop Tools (Google AdWords Editor, Bing Ads Editor).

  • You'll be an emerging expert in Pay-Per-Click (PPC) optimization techniques (ROI / CPA / CPL / Impression Share)

  • Bid Management tools (DoubleClick Search, Kenshoo, Marin, etc. Marin & Searchlight) as well as 3rd Party Tracking Tools (DoubleClick, Floodlight, Sizmek, etc.)

  • Experience meeting with and delighting clients is essential

  • Working knowledge of Paid Social a plus
